2 Doors, which will you stand before?

It’s been said to die is just entering a new door to another life. In a sense that is true. You have also heard Jesus stands outside the door to your heart patiently waiting for you to open the door to HIM.

Just something to think about. If you never let Jesus into your heart. Then HE will never open the door to HIS Heaven for you to come into. Instead when you die you will stand before a door that you will open. There is a sign above the door you will stand before.

Just under the sign is a pull chain attached to a light bulb. Still not understanding the message you will reach up and pull the chain that’s attached to the light bulb expecting the light to come on and illuminate your path inside, but instead you will turn ON the Darkness.

Congratulations you have arrived at the place you personally have chosen to spend Eternity. You now will be in Outer Darkness…blind and alone for eternity without hope in a place where …”the dead shall live again.”

Then you will hear HIS VOICE say to you…
“ those who live in Darkness have seen a great light ”. And the words on the sign HE wanted you to read when you lived your life on earth, will flood into your mind.

Matthew 4:16-17
16“The people who were sitting in darkness saw a great Light,
And those who were sitting in the land and shadow of death,
Upon them a Light dawned.”
17 From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Reflections:
The Bible gives us in-sight into the physical world we think is real; and into the invisible world that is true reality. The spiritual dimension is more real than our own existence. The physical realm is ending, but the spiritual realm is forever….

The Tomb is Empty

The Tomb is Empty and the Heavens Will Shake When HE Speaks.

BUT when HE wants your attention HE Whisper your name.. He prepared my heart for its re-birth in eternity past when I lived alive in HIS mind.

Hear HIS Words Written to both Your and I :

I knew you even before you were conceived… Jeremiah 1: 4-5
I chose you when I planned creation… Ephesians 1: 11-12
You were not a mistake… Psalm 139: 15-16
For all your days are written in my book… Psalm 139: 15-16
I determined the exact time of your birth and where you would live… Acts 17:26
I knit you together in your mothers womb…Psalm 139:13
And brought you forth on the day you were born… Psalm 71:6

The day will come in the future when I will live within YOU.

I will never leave you nor forsake you because you belong to me. You are being prepared as a love gift for my Son…who loves you as much as I do.

I have written my Word into a Book that explains the Past , Present and Future of your Kind. Here is a Summary of my plan but I expect you to read ALL MY WORDS within MY HOLY BIBLE. There are four simple points. These four points contain depths of knowledge beyond your comprehension. For who among those I have created can say they understand ME or can even begin to know ME.

Point One: God had a vision to create an ultimate Holy and Eternal World where God and man would co-exist. This vision became reality when God said, “Let there be Light….” And so there was a place where God and man could walk together in a garden, in the cool of the day.

Point Two: Sin entered into this pristine world, twisting the relationship between God and man. This disease born on the dark wings of a fallen angel named Lucifer spread to every man and woman made in the image of God for all time.

Point Three: Two worlds now existed side by side in two dimensions, occupying the same space but not the same time; God in one, and man in the other. But God promised to send His Son to redeem mankind and the world he lived in and re-unite both planes of existence…into ONE.

And so Emmanuel the God / Man was born into the world to die for the world and make it ONE again.

Point Four: In the beginning everything was made new. Then for a time everything new became old and life became a cycle of continuing birth and death. But just as God had created the beginning He also created the new beginning of the end.

God would bring forth new birth pangs that would ultimately give birth to a new blending of Earth and Heaven, a place where God and Man again would walk together as FAMILY……. FOREVER.

Time is Ending and the Dawn of Eternity is HERE ! Will YOU be part of MY New Beginning?

Then you must answer the only question that echo’s through out time…the question MY SON JESUS demands an answer too.

Who do you say that I AM?

Tomb is Empty

The Anvil of God

When you look back into the history of the civilizations of the world you will see a path of blood. Its always been there meandering throughout the globes topography. It’s a flowing river of crimson touching every human being throughout history.

You can walk this path of blood back in time seeing one culture pitted against another. One culture wields the mighty arm of Oppression, the other resists…fighting for its Freedoms.

Freedom and Oppression are the two titans embodied within every one of us. They are at odds continually. They represent two socio-economic views in opposition to each other on how to control people. Each wants harmony, but the methodologies are radically different. Oppression will make the decisions for you, while Freedom allows you to be an individual.

When the wall came down in Germany we all thought the deathblow had finally been administered to Oppression and the evil empire had now been crushed down into the earth.

The world was glad because now Freedom had gained yet another country. No longer would the oppressed be responsible to someone else thinking for them, making decisions for them…creating rules for them to live by.

The door for Freedoms family was open. Freedom grew quickly and Democracy and Capitalism could take their rightful place among the people bringing peace and tranquility to all.

People would now be able to think for themselves and do what they wanted and live a life of abundance. But there is a flaw within this new plan of Freedom, Democracy and Capitalism.

A flaw that runs deep into the very root of what it means to be a human being.

In our country living in abundance, having every desire, every want fulfilled is more dangerous to us than anything else. This simply is because at our core as human beings…it is always all about us. The SIN we were born with will lie, cheat, steal, and murder because we are driven to fulfill our lusts….not our needs or for that matter anyone else’s needs…only our lusts.

When people have freedom and all their needs are met they reach new lows as standards go further down every year. Yet worse than this is that they forget God, because they no longer need their daily bread from God.

In our arrogance and ignorance we think we are feeding ourselves. In actuality we have always been fed and always will be fed by the hand of God.

Beware of Freedom…for when you think you are strong you are weak and if you are proud you will find yourself on the ANVIL of GOD… And GOD WILL HUMBLE YOU !

Being Salt and Light

How can you and I as believers in Christ remain true to our individual calling by God to be His Salt and Light in the darkness of the culture we live in?

To begin we need to define both Salt and Light. Salt is a preservative. As long as salt remains pure and does not get mixed with another substance it will keep its properties and continue to be effective.

Like salt, Believers who remain in the Word and stand alone for Christ in society will have an effective witness. Once we try to be like the surrounding culture our witness becomes ineffective and our credibility is gone. Then to make matters worse through our stumbling we let the Lord be mocked.

Salt also provides flavor. The Gospel represents a meal that when flavored with truth, and given to a true “Seeker of God” will satisfy their appetite forever.

Salt also makes us thirsty and so we drink water to refresh ourselves. But water is only a temporary solution for our thirst as we begin to thirst over and over again but never get satisfied.

The Gospel however is the Living Water that satisfies our body, mind and soul eternally and will satisfy our everlasting thirst.

Light is meant to illuminate. Just as darkness flees from the light, so to the Gospel, the light of Truth; causes the lies that live in the shadows that plague mankind’s soul to disappear.

Light illuminates the path before you, so you can see the destination of your journey clearly. The Gospel represents a journey that everyone needs to take in order to gain the Salvation offered by God.

The Word of God is a “Lamp unto thy feet”. It keeps you from stumbling on the pathway home.

Therefore, you and I are to be salt and light in a Godless society. We are to open our mouths whenever the Holy Spirit gives us an opportunity to witness to a forever dying soul. We are never to compromise our life, our walk or our talk. All three must be unified for us to effectively witness to non-believers.

The Apostle Paul in the Book of Acts spoke about “becoming like one of them” in order to witness to the pagan world around him. He did not mean to blend into the society, to be like one of them, to do what they do; so he could have an opportunity to witness to them.

If Paul acted like them he would not have stood out from among them. “Becoming like one of them”, means to understand what they believe and why they believe it so you can witness to them intelligently and show them the errors of their belief system, the flaws contained within their
religious worldview.

But FIRST take them to the CROSS of JESUS the CHRIST. Remember that Eternal Life and Eternal Death begin at the CROSS.

Matthew 12:30
[ The Unpardonable Sin ] He who is not with Me is against Me; and he who does not gather with Me scatters.

HOME AT LAST

Father, this is ONE of MINE Whom I LOVE

Isaiah 25: 7-9

7  And on this mountain He will swallow up the [a]covering which is over all
peoples, Even the veil which is stretched over all nations.
8  He will swallow up death for all time, And the Lord God will wipe tears
away from all faces, And He will remove the reproach of His people from
all the earth; For the Lord has spoken.
9  And it will be said in that day, “Behold, this is our God for whom we have
waited that He might save us.

This is the Lord (JESUS) for whom we have waited; Let us rejoice and be glad in HIS Salvation.”

Father... this is ONE of MINE

Can You Pick a Person ?

I was once asked this question among a group of friends. How would you answer it?
Are there 5 people either alive or dead that I would want to spend time with? People I admire; people that have touched the world and me?

Let me give you some of His historically documented accomplishments to consider.

…He spoke the universe into existence from nothing
…He created you and I
…He created Angels
…He parted the waters of the Red Sea
…He became a baby born of a virgin
…He became the God / Man, bringing HOPE for mankind
…He commanded a storm to be still and walked on water
.He healed the sick and the lame
…He healed the deaf, the dumb and the blind
…He created limbs where none existed
…He fed thousands from a child’s sack lunch
…He commanded fallen angels / demons to come out of people
…He raised the dead and gave them life
…He is a real person
…He lived a real life and walked this Earth

JESUS holds the future in HIS Hands and HE is coming back again Very Soon!
YES within your lifetime. There is no one like Him. Only He commands my interest

An Interview from Hell

The following is not a story but an illustration by Christ of a real person in a real place…Lazarus is still there today, 2,000 years later. There are two things that would hurt me deeply as a person. One is to be purposely ignored and the other is to be forgotten. I have said before that I currently am the repository of all the memories of my mother and father.

When I die and go to be with the Lord, there will be no one left to remember him or her. If they knew Christ as their Savior and Lord (which they do not), then there would be a reunion in heaven between us. But I do not have that to look forward to and neither do they. When I go to be with the Lord He promises to wipe away every tear from my eyes regarding this journey of life here on this veil of tears we call earth.

He will somehow give me peace and I believe forgetfulness of all those whom I loved and cherished while here, but will never see again.

So in a true sense I will have forgotten them, never to be remembered again. Unlike them (my parents) who will be in another place, not together, but alone with all their memories of the life they lived.

Memories that will be remembered by each of them and reviewed forever.

Who do you know and love more than your own life that does not know Jesus Christ as Savior? Look around you at. …Your wife, your husband, your brother, your sister, your child (son or daughter), your grandchildren, your relatives, your best friends…the list can go on and on for most of us. By keeping your mouth closed about your faith do you understand that you are helping them condemn themselves?

That’s not what God wants and that should not be what you want. If you claim faith in Christ and His written words then you cannot argue that the following account is both literal and real.

Luke 16: 19 – 31
19 “There was a rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day. 20 And at his gate was laid a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, 21 who desired to be fed with what fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover, even the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 The poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s side.

The rich man also died and was buried, 23 and in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side. 24 And he called out, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus to dip the end of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in anguish in this flame.’

25 But Abraham said, ‘Child, remember that you in your lifetime received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner bad things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in anguish. 26 And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, in order that those who would pass from here to you may not be able, and none may cross from there to us.’

27 And he said, ‘Then I beg you, father, to send him to my father’s house— 28 for I have five brothers so that he may warn them, lest they also come into this place of torment.’ 29 But Abraham said, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them.’ 30 And he said, ‘No, father Abraham, but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ 31 He said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be convinced if someone should rise from the dead.'”

Note that Lazarus is very much aware of his surroundings. He remembers his five brothers and wants to warn them, so they do not end up where he is.

Someone DID RISE from the DEAD . HIS NAME IS JESUS.

The TEARS of THE FATHER

Lets go back in time for a moment to when God made Adam. God reached down into the earth and gathered a handful of dust from which He would create the first man. God is omniscient meaning He knows the future. He knew that there would be days coming when He would have to sacrifice His only begotten Son on a Cross-to bring salvation to the race of man.

So when God gathered the dust to form the first man, it was His tears that wet the dust to turn it into clay as God molded Adam into His Image. These were the first of the many tears of God because He knew what the cost was going to be to His beloved Son on the Cross. He knew that He would have to turn away from the cries of His Son on the Cross-when Jesus roared “My God, My God…Why have you forsaken me?”

Yet God made Adam anyway from the dust mixed with His Tears. Then as Adam awoke a new creation…the first man…Adam stood and stretched his arms out as all of us do when we awake.

And the light that reflected from God upon the first man created a shadow of the Cross-behind the man. God’s eyes looked upon the dust that Adam was made of …and tears filled the eyes of God again.

The Shadow of Mans Cross would be there every morning in this land filled with both light and shadows till the end of mankind’s days.

Tears of God

Death of Mankind

broken stone heart

The race of ADAM no longer reflects the Image of God, his Creator. Mankind as a physical being is now doomed, soon to be terminated, yet God still offers him eternal life in place of eternal death through the gift of FAITH in His Son Jesus, which is the 6th sense that the race of Adam is missing.

Take a moment as we stand along side Adam’s death bed in Hospice. Adam lives in time not eternity. Adam represents every fallen human being who ever lived; Adam is the race of mankind whose light is close to going out forever.

See all the tubes stuck in him, as he exists only on life support. His breathing is shallow. He is still and not aware of anything around him as he lives from breath to breath. Adam the ancient of days of mankind who lives in time will soon run out of time…because time will be no more.

God gave us all Ears to hear with and Eyes to see with and a Mind to think with. Yet for 6,000 years the human race, Adam’s race, our race has remained blind, deaf and dumb to the knowledge of God.

God wants to save you from yourself, to change you from a son of Adam to a child of God. He wants to change your Broken Heart of Stone to one of flesh. He wants to give you a blood transfusion, for in the Blood of Christ there is power to give you eternal life. Did you know that there is a river of blood that flows from the Earth to heaven?

This river of blood represents the deaths of the multitudes throughout the 6,000 years that died in the arms of Christ believing in His death on the Cross-for their sins. This river of blood when viewed from afar looks like a Scarlet Ribbon. If you look closely you will see that it is anchored in the base of the Cross of Christ, planted deep into the Judean soil within the boundaries of the City of God called Jerusalem.

The other end of the Scarlet Ribbon is tied the Throne of God. It connects to both Jesus and the Great Cloud of Witness behind Gods throne. Those scarlet strands reach out across the entire world from heaven connecting to the Remnant, the Redeemed called from before the world was formed that live today on planet earth. These scarlet strands are attached to each of us personally who believe in Jesus and are living today in time.

Those strands represent an Eternal future filled with LIGHT and HOPE for all TRUE Believers. If you are not tied to His Cross then your Eternal future beyond the grave will be filled with DARKNESS and NO Hope.
Because you never took the time to investigate the TRUTH that will kill your pride and allow you to walk humbly before the One True God.

Two became ONE in CHRIST

The Jewish people are not the only Chosen ones. The Hebrew word for chosen, Bachar reflects the more familiar New Testament term Elect.The Church of Jesus Christ is the Elect of God (2 Timothy 2:10). If you have received Jesus as your Messiah and Savior, that means that God chose you!

God keeps His promises to both of His Born Again “Chosen Peoples”, Messianic Jews and Christians …for His names sake. Both of us also experience the same resentment the world feels toward God’s people Israel. When you tell someone that Jesus Christ is the only way to have a relationship with God. People will resent you for being narrow-minded, just as they resent Jewish people for being exclusive.

Israel and the Church both represent the blessing of God’s Choosing. Both demonstrate the truth of God’s love and faithfulness, His mercy and His grace. We together are the Living Stones that make up the One True Born Again Church of JESUS the Messiah, the Christ, the SON of GOD.

Both Israel and the Church may experience deep and abiding failure. Both may be resented, hated even persecuted by the world. Yet both are people of great destiny with a HOPE filled future.

That future is secure ONLY for those who name the name of JESUS not because of the strength or the goodness of those who were chosen, but because of the faithful, loving and all-powerful GOD who chooses, so that HE HIMSELF receive’s the glory. GOD chooses those who WILL believe in HIM!

Because HE Lives
Because HE Cares
Because HE Call’s

BECAUSE HE IS COMING BACK VERY SOON !
